Just a quickie post to respond to all the kind comments. My surgery went well; I was in the hospital for the past 3 days, and am home now (Saturday). The staples are out and I’ve got a bottle of vicodin close to hand (right now I’m feeling no pain–heh) and six weeks of recovery ahead.
Mom slipped into a coma on Wednesday but managed to come out of it. I was so afraid she’d die while I was in the hospital and greatly relieved when my sister told me she’d come out of it. She’s lucid, but wavers in and out. A friend’s going to drive me down to see her but I won’t be able to stay ’cause I can’t do much moving about and must be careful of physical stress. My aunt and cousin have arrived–thank goodness.
So–that’s it for me now; when I’m able to focus more I’ll chat a bit. Thanks, guys; blessings to you all. d:)
